their footing going forward. >> in the budget he will deliver next week, president obama is planning to include a five-year freeze in nonsecurity spending that would save an estimated $400 billion over the next decade.ç however, according to a source familiar with the process, obama will propose to have funding for low-income heating assistance. >> so they're at $40 billion right now in cuts. >> the republicans are. >> the republicans. >> have a great way for them to get to 80 billion. go after the pentagon budget as well. >> right. >> they keep going, harold, as rand paul said himself, to such a small sliver of the budget and they think they can slash and burn and end the process hamper some programs that we really do need. like, for instance, s.e.c. enforcement. i would think most people think we need that. but because they're afraid to go to the pentagon budget and afraid to go to medicare and medicaid and afraid to go to social security where all the money is, they're slashing and burning in some areas that we really need kept going. >> the question many of their voters including those wh
. there was a nugget buried in the budget which i don't think a lot of people paid attention to. the obama administration itself, did you see this on the jobless number? they're projecting years out what joblessness is going to be. in 2012, which is the next time that will matter, 8.6%. so to the extent that you thought -- and we've talked about trying to get that number down to 8%. that's a magic number for him. the fact that the administration is actually suggesting that they'll be at 8.6%, it's going to be harder for them to make this argument even after all the quiet conversation unless that number gets to be in a better place. >> right now, the president -- unemployment is at 9%. >> hovering at 9%. real unemployment, much higher. >> the president is at 51%, the latest fox poll of likely voters. it's hard to say. willie, they're rational in the fact that -- we should -- we should have better leadership than we have in washington. we talk about it here every day. but they're no different from business people who know if they do certain things they could risk losing their jobs. all i'm s

it because it is strong. president obama said the egyptian people have been told that there was a transition of authority but it's not yet clear that this rans six is immediate, meaningful or sufficient. we therefore urge the egyptian government to move swiftly to explain the changes that have been made and to spell out in clear and unambiguous language the step by step process that will lead to democracy and the representative government that the people seek. the voices of the egyptian people must be heard. >> wow, that is a strong statement. and, mike, take us inside the white house. we actually are going to have the chief of staff on and about -- a chicago guy. and halfway through the day, we found out he was not going to be here. we will not ask you to quote the exact text of the e-mail, but it was written in sort of chicago -- a bit of a chicago swagger. >> a little flare there. >> my deepest regrets michael, i shall not be able to attend. it wasn't that. >> it was not that. >> i think during the course of the day and the events last night, the white house, the state department, they we
